Persistent unemployment on local labour markets and local development

2017 - 2018

Persistent and high local unemployment is a major problem all over the world. In transition processes regions develop diversely, resulting in increasing unemployment in some regions and decreasing in others. In neoclassical theory this will even out over time, due to wage differentials and mobility. In real life, however, regional differences often remain, due to, among other things, the housing market offset mobility. The aim of this project is to analyse and compare persistent unemployment on local labour markets in Scandinavia and post-socialist countries in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) from a defined perspective.
